Bill Foster files for St. Petersburg mayoral race
ST. PETERSBURG -- Former City Council Member Bill Foster has filed to run for mayor.
Foster, an attorney, had said he planned to enter the race for months now, but he couldn't raise or spend money until he filed.
"Unlike other campaigns, I don’t have to cram for the final," Foster said. "From Day One, I can take off running."
Foster said he will hold a public event March 2, exactly six months before the September primary, to unveil his campaign slogan and Web site.
His campaign treasurer is Gary Sweat.
